Gun Violence Prevention
School is the last place a parent should have to worry about their child’s safety.
Gun violence has become far too common in the United States and Gina believes that if the federal government won’t take action to prevent gun violence and keep our kids safe, states must act. Without action, thoughts and prayers are meaningless.
In 2017, Gina was proud to champion and sign The Protect Rhode Island Families Act, which prohibits gun possession by individuals convicted of domestic violence crimes, and requires that all guns in their possession be turned in upon conviction.
Gina was the first Governor in the country to sign a Red Flag Executive Order after the school mass shooting in Parkland, Florida — ordering police to take all available legal steps to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous individuals.
She is with Rhode Islanders demanding a ban on military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines like those used in Parkland, Las Vegas and Sandy Hook and she is championing legislation to make schools more secure, healthier and safer.
Gina has never taken a dollar from the NRA and she never will.
